@alex I can only imagine the heads in hands all around the US nation. The realisation that rock bottom has been hit.

@alex thick as two planks of wood is the POTUS. Humiliating for all 300 million over whom he ineptly holds sway. The idiocracy is now (in the USA, at least).

And yeah, shut it off after the first segment, because nothing good can come of it.

Debate relfection: the US era is well and truly over. The USA is now a failed, rogue state, run by the idocracy.

@sir it's humiliating to all US citizens to have this guy at the helm. I just wish that Biden was Sanders instead.

The US POTUS debate suggests that the world's most dangerous country is run by a imbicilic toddler. Beyond belief.

@nimbius @miguel heh - there're lots of clouds out there. The polluted, shitty ones belong to Microsoft (well, their subcontractors) and Amazon.

@miguel Indeed, that's true, tragically. But more than a few of us are keen to see that change (speaking as an naturalised NZer of US origin): greens.org.nz/security_service

@lightweight Mostly of the educational system of my country, México, works with M$ technology. Now the headaches using the 365 + Teams platforms.

@miguel but yes, the short-sightedness is on display worldwide - even here in NZ where I live - I recently asked this question of our Ministry for Education (their answer is a non-answer): fyi.org.nz/request/12489-infor Personally, I find their attitude entirely incompatible with true education and respect for their learners...

@miguel yup. This is an excellent lesson for educational institutions who've made a massive tactical blunder in committing themselves to US multinational technologies. The liability for institutions & learners is massive (given that the data is held outside your country). One would think that educational institutions would be better at learning...

Enjoying some well earned Schadenfreude right now 😂

“Has anyone started having discussions with their CIO/CEO about moving back to an in-house mail server? I advocate for it” cbronline.com/opinion/microsof Heh heh. Yup.

By the way, if you're using MS Office 365 and are unable to access your data right now... maybe consider the fact that your organisation has made a profound tactical blunder in putting all your eggs in a dubious US-based multinational corporation's basket... and get out of that contract right away.

*Sigh* - website for the county (the same one in which Microsoft is HQ'd) in the US from which I need to get my absentee ballot for the POTUS election has been down for over a week. No response to my emails. Just rang & they said "oh, yeah, we're working on fixing the site. Here's an alternate link you can use" & the woman gave me a random link that looked like an internal MS Sharepoint (blech) instance. Sure enough, link isn't visible to me in NZ. Rang again, but they're now closed. Typical.
